HARD ROCKING QUARTET KILLINGER CONFIRMED AS SUPPORT FOR VOLBEAT AND HELL YEAH! ON U.S. TOUR IN JULY



Canadian rockers Killinger have just been tapped as support for Volbeat and Hell Yeah! on their upcoming tour in the United States in July.  Prior to the commencement of these dates, Killinger will be featured at the 8th Annual Boonstock Music & Arts Festival in Gibbons, Alberta, Canada on June 30th alongside such heavyweights as Korn, Puddle Of Mudd and Volbeat.  Please see below for tour dates.  Killinger was just honored last month in their hometown with the 2012 Edmonton Music "People's Choice" Award.

Killinger
's self-titled full-length debut was released last year in North America via Sunmor Entertainment, distributed by BDG.  BDG is distributed by RED Distribution, LLC (a division of Sony Music Entertainment).  The album features a contemporary rock sound which incorporates the best elements of 80s hard rock and metal.  Produced by Rick Plester (Michael Schenker, George Lynch) and mixed by Mike Fraser (Aerosmith, AC/DC, Metallica), KILLINGER contains catchy melodies, big guitar riffs and a guest appearance by guitar great George Lynch.

With an over-the-top live show, the band has already established a solid fanbase in Western Canada, touring with the likes of Lynch Mob and Stryper.  Of Killinger, Exclaim! best describes their sound as "gritty, double-time rock with soaring vocals and dive-bomb guitar solos...", while The Belleville Intelligencer avows, "Laden with crunching guitars, thunderous drums and old-school lyrics...the sound is huge like the classic arena rock albums of the 1980s..."  Click
